Overview
East Bay Bicycle Coalition (EBBC) promotes bicycling as an everyday means of transportation and recreation.

We work with 33 cities, Caltrans, and other government agencies to make bicycling in the East Bay safer, easier, and more enjoyable.

Recent Activity

East Bay Bike Coalition

Construction of Oakland’s first protected bike lanes are now a reality between downtown and 29th Street, and volunteers are needed to hand out good parking awards to drivers and educate people bicycling about new curbside bike lanes. All help is appreciated, even for partial shifts. Sign up here - bikeeastbay.org/telegraph-signup

Measure BB is a better version of 2012’s Measure B1, and retains a 4-fold increase in bike/ped funding in every city and unincorporated area of the County. Measure BB will build a connected network of safe and comfortable bikeways in your town, allowing you to ride safely and comfortably from your home to work, to school, to shopping centers and other important destinations, without worrying about cars. We like to think the BB’s are for ‘Better Bicycling’ but they also are for ‘Better BART,’ ‘Better Buses,’ ‘Better Boots’—walking, you get the idea. Our Yes on BB campaign is in high gear and we need your help to get out the vote.

We are seeking volunteers to help with phone-banking, outreach, and materials distribution. Sign up Today: bikeeastbay.org/YesOnBB

Action Alert: Continuous bikeways NOT proposed for Telegraph, nor are Protected Bikeways

Continuous bikeways are NOT proposed for Telegraph, nor are Protected Bikeways. Come to September 11 and 13 Open Houses sponsored by City of Oakland to voice your concerns and support our asks for ‘continuous bikeways’ that are ‘protected from moving traffic.’ People have asked for protected bikeways, to the tune of up to 70% of survey respondents and over 110 local businesses on Telegraph Avenue. Even drivers responded to City surveys saying a bike lane is their top priority for improving the street.

Protected bikeways encourage significantly more bicycling by comfortably separating you from traffic. They also are quite feasible on Telegraph Avenue, while preserving traffic flow allowing for local business delivery needs. Most importantly, protected bikeways will help transform Telegraph into a neighborhood where people are active, enjoying the street life, getting to know each other more, and becoming proud of the city they live and work in.

What you can do:
Come to an upcoming Public Open House sponsored by City of Oakland to voice your concerns and support ‘continuous protected bikeways’ on Telegraph Avenue:

Thursday, September 11, 6-8pm; Beebe Memorial Cathedral (3900 Telegraph)
Saturday, September 13, 10am-12:00pm (new corrected start time); Gogi Time Banquet Room (2600 Telegraph)

RSVP on Facebook: www.facebook.com/events/382215...

Great coverage from Streetsblog: sf.streetsblog.org/2014/04/18/...

"The City of Oakland has released preliminary design options [PDF] for a redesign of Telegraph Avenue, which include parking-protected bike lanes, improvements to speed up AC Transit lines, and pedestrian safety upgrades. Planners will hold open house meetings to collect input on the design options starting next week.

“We’re very excited they’ve released a lot of different options,” said Dave Campbell, advocacy director for Bike East Bay. “It’s a very robust set of choices and allows people to make an informed decision on the best ones.”

This is the first time Telegraph is being revisited for a redesign since was taken out of the East Bay Bus Rapid Transit route that begins construction this fall. The proposal to extend BRT on Telegraph to Berkeley was dropped after merchants fought to preserve car parking."

The City of Oakland, in collaboration with the Alameda County Transportation Commission, is working to improve transportation safety and comfort on Telegraph Avenue between 20th Street and 57th Street for all modes of travel. The project builds on past planning efforts along Telegraph Avenue, including the 2005 Pedestrian Streetscape Improvement Project. The initial phase of the project will conclude in the summer of 2014, and will provide detailed concept drawings for the corridor that will allow the City to seek construction funding (e.g., grant money).

Telegraph Talks
Saturday, February 22, 2014, 10:00am - 12pm
Oasis Market, 3045 Telegraph Ave.

Join us for ‘Telegraph Talks’ starting in February: In order to talk businesses and neighborhood groups into supporting our goal of converting a lane of traffic on Telegraph Ave into your bikeway, we need lots of volunteers talking with businesses and neighborhood groups on either side of this key bike route. You can start today by ‘adopting’ a local business and get to know them—start talking up bikes! Find out who is the manager, ask if many customers come by bike, would they like a free bike rack installed on the sidewalk in front of their door. Contact Dave Campbell for suggestions or to let him know which business you want to adopt. Here are some Telegraph talking points to get you comfortable.

Telegraph Avenue Bikeway Campaign has begun, and we need your help to build a great bikeway on this direct connector between UC Berkeley and Downtown Oakland. The City of Oakland has started its work collecting data and holding stakeholder interviews, including with EBBC and Walk Oakland Bike Oakland. The project on Telegraph Avenue extends between Aileen St and 20th St, and Oakland has agreed to analyze removing travel lanes or turn lanes to make room for comfortable bike lanes.
